Milk and Cookies for Santa and his Elves!

Ever since I can remember, December has been the month of massive amounts of baking. My Grandmother would make a special Christmas pie that took several days worth of steps to put together ( I am still trying to locate the recipe for it!). My Mother would bake trays and trays of cookies which became a super hot commodity.

Needless to say, my sister and I had no choice but to pick up some type of baking skills. She has become the cake lady, and I have carried on the tradition of cookie baking!

In honor of the holidays I will share some of the favorites that are baked in our house during the month of December. Below is a list of ingredients to have on hand. I usually prefer to bake the cookies in stages, and then decorate them all at once. This way not only is it festive and fun, the mess stays sandwiched between a weekend, my house stays neat and my family stays sane!

Over the next week or so I will be posting cookie how to and recipes…for now I have included a master list of ingredients that you will need in order to bake all of the cookies below. I have also included an individual ingredient list for each cookie, in case you decide to pick and choose.

 

Below are Apricot Star Linzers and Rasberry Chocolate Dipped Sandwich Cookies
